Power of Pink Day 3

Today we are so honored to share this mini album titled "My Pink Journey" with you.

Our very own Mireille Divjak from The Netherlands has courageously and humbly
shared her very personal journey with us through scrapbooking a mini album with
the beginning of her story. Our thoughts and prayers remain with her as she continues
and completes this journey.

Mireille, Thank you for sharing your pink journey of hope with us all!   

"My Pink Journey"
Designed by: Mireille Divjak

"title" says : Complete removal of a malign tumor class 3 - April 28 2010

Journaling block says: I would have never thought that at the age of 38 I would get breast cancer. My journey started in April, my pink journey. I couldn't have traveled without the help of my friends and family

"title" says "Pirate Princess" - June 2010

Journaling block says : When my lines for radiation therapy were drawn Noah called out "WOW!!! How COOL!! You have a sword in your throat mom! You are a real pirate princess!! - The stones are my lucky stones from my kids that I carried with me every day in the pocket of my jeans.

 Title - Radio Robbie and Chemo Casper - June, July, August 2010

Journaling block: The hardest part was trying to explain to the kids what was going on with mommy. Thank goodness for great kid-books like Radio Robbie and Chemo Casper

(sidenote: books the hospital gives to people to help explain this to children. It's about the "superheroes " Radio Robbie and Chemo Casper that help destroy the mean cancer cells)

Title - Wig and hats

Journaling Block: And then I lost my hair, a process Amber followed day by day, gently pulling 
my hair every night to check if it was already "happening" .

Title: The doctors assistants - September 2010

Journaling Block: I have the best doctors assistants in the whole wide world. 
Noah holds the tray at the lab and Amber helps with the drip and the bandaid.

Title: Photoshoot in the backyard with Eva - October 2010

Journaling Block: Never thought that this day I would have enough self confidence to pose like this, 
without my wig, with and without my hat. 

 Thank you for  taking the time to read Mireielle's
story and please join with us in hoping and 
praying for a cure for this horrible disease that 
continues to attack those people we love.
